Asthma might weaken the immune system. For now, asthma has no cure, however, it is highly manageable/ treatable disease. According to some doctors, today’s asthma treatments are so effective, many people have near-complete control of the symptoms.

Nothing to fear
I read through a comment from an asthmatic patient who said he stopped using inhalar years ago when he was introduced to a cheap drugs – Ventoline, Franol & Predesolone. According to him, he takes it in the morning and evening. After a while, he started taking it only when he finds it difficult to breath. “When it’s serious I take 2 of each but i usually take 1 each, he added.”

Apart from using the inhaler and any other drugs prescribe by doctors, asthmatic patients need to avoid certain intake of food as well as getting familiar with some. It is important to get to know what triggers attacks and try to avoid it. This same rules is apply to pregnant mothers too.
